Sister Mercy

Updated: Apr 8

When the mine came crashing down today

I was running for the light I heard sister mercy say

Brother, can I lend you a hand?

You won’t make it out if you can’t stand

I was twisted by fears I was twisted by cares

I was running and reciting my prayers

With one hand on the cross and one hand on the gun

I was looking back to find the sun

Old Mr. Winchester gave me this gun

He said if you can’t find your way out then run toward the sun

There’s no good in crying out to anyone

It’s just you and the ground you can’t run

Sister mercy won’t you lend me a hand

Sister mercy won’t you help me stand
